What is the IOTF?

The IOTF was formed following ICANN55 in Marrakech. The IOTF offers a channel for ICANN to request insights or clarifications to ensure that ICANN and the community remain aligned on ICANN's implementation planning efforts of the ICG Proposal. The group was formed to include the co-Chairs and Design Team leads of the Cross Community Working Group to Develop an IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal on Naming Related Functions (CWG-Stewardship), and has since grown to also include representatives from the ICG, Numbering Resources community and Protocol Parameters community.
